The ICC is looking for a summer intern to grow our team!

Want to work for an exciting nonprofit outlet focused on Statehouse news, policies, and politics? Come join the Indiana Capital Chronicle as a summer intern.

Who we are: 

We’re a digital outlet that debuted last year with a phenomenal reception and have quickly become a top source for state news impacting Hoosiers. We have no paywall or ads because of our nonprofit status and are primarily funded through grants and donations.

Our staff includes Statehouse veterans and is led by Editor-in-Chief and longtime Hoosier journalist Niki Kelly.

She guides three reporters in covering all the big news – including overlooked issues missed by other downsized newsrooms. Your work will also be republished by media outlets around the state under our Creative Commons license.

What you’ll do:

Interns will learn the ropes of today’s journalism work by helping to cover government meetings, digging into financial reports and crafting enterprise stories with policy impact, along with writing briefs, stories and profiles – all while working alongside experienced reporters.

The 12-week internship is based in Indianapolis and funded by the Indianapolis Press Club Foundation. The ICC will cover downtown parking for you during that time.

Applicants should:

  • Be prepared to work between 30-32 hours a week, earning a $6,000 stipend from the Indianapolis Press Club Foundation.
  • Have their own computer equipment.
  • Be current Indiana college undergraduate or graduate students, or students who have just graduated. Prior journalism experience is not required but will be considered in hiring decisions.

We are committed to diversity and prioritize equity in all recruiting and hiring.

Applications are due by Dec. 20. Email a copy of your resume and three relevant clips to [email protected]
